Made Today meetup

Do you want to connect with other designers, producers or developers? Join our new Made Today meetup!

We cover a different topic in digital media each week. It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro in your field, or a beginner – this is your chance to learn skills from each other on a range of digital projects. We give you access to our digital media lab and recording gear and you get to make cool things and meet new people!

What have you #madetoday?

Tinkering on the electronics bench, crafting your latest design on the laser cutter, or sewing an eco-fashion reusable bag? Share your work on Instagram and tag us using #madetoday or @slqedge. We’d love to see and share your work with the community!

Got something longer form, or want to share your process? We’re on Vimeo! Check out talented hiphop artist, Bashir, aka Benjib youngB, who took part in our Siganto Digital Learning Project in collaboration with Southbank TAFE. Also a shoutout to Leon, who used our new gimbal device for recording video with mobile.

Get making! CNC ready for action!

The CNC router will be available for use again from 6 April during Fabrication Lab open hours. Just make a booking once you’ve completed an induction. If you’ve completed a sewing, electronics or laser induction, make sure you come back to test out your skills in the improved Fabrication Lab!
